About My Clients

Have you been yearning to build self-confidence and empowerment? Are you seeking to build a strong connection to yourself and the world around you? If so, I would be honored to support you on this journey! I work with adults from any and all backgrounds. I seek to support you and empower you toward healing and growth. Whether you seek individual therapy or perhaps couple/family/group therapy, I can provide you with a secure, non-judgemental space to work through any obstacle you face.

My Background and Approach

In practice, I work from an emotionally focused perspective, paying close attention to connections and relationships. I believe in incorporating nature into the therapeutic process because the bond between humans and the environment can be incredibly powerful in the healing process. I'm motivated to find the most effective outlet for clients because one [type of] therapy does not fit all. With that said, I am always learning new approaches and incorporating new avenues of expression so that every client I work with feels comfortable. Throughout the therapeutic relationship, I work collaboratively and am in no way an expert on a client's life - I am merely their support and a consistent source of positive regard.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I value all of life's experiences as I believe they mold us into who we are. The good, the bad, the not-so-pretty experiences weave themselves into our unique selves. That bad relationship you had in college, perhaps, has shaped how you view relationships now. Or, maybe that risk you took applying for a job really paid off and now you're feeling confident and capable? Whatever the instance might be, everything we experience shapes who we are. At times, they can result in feeling empowered or other times feeling stuck. Let's process what might be keeping you stuck so that you can move on to feeling empowered!
